Walk Video

It is pretty simple and a great way to get a workout in and spend time together.

We walked 2 miles in 30 minutes.

The first segment on this DVD is

Family Walk Workout

It starts out with a warm-up. You do lots of walking in place and then add in some basic steps like stepping to the side, kicking your legs out in front of you, lifting your knees up, kick backs. You also add in arm workouts with and without weights. She ends with cool down time.

Some of Leslie's quotes:

These days we are all looking for ways to spend good quality family time and walking is one of them.

Walking works to keep families healthy.

Kids should burn calories and stay nice and active..... not just parents.

It's important to schedule fitness time into your day.

The second segment on this DVD is:

Smart Talk How to Motivate Your Kids to Live a Healthy Life

Talk to your kids and motivate them to be healthy on the inside and outside. Don't call your children fat or overweight or lazy Don't make them feel like something is wrong. Instead: Focus on the positive, and how good it feels to eat right, and how good it feels to exercise how much fun it is.  Motivate them to feel better about themselves. Be a good role model for your children. It is nice to do exercise as a family: weekly walk. Exercise, talk, and bond with your family. Exercise regularly and consistently.

The third segment on this DVD is:

Food Talk Healthy Grab and Go Snacks and Meals

Here are some ideas that they share for
